    Hi all,
    Recently got a new pc and have been playing with OCing it.
    I am struggling to find a sensible answer on what voltages my kit max out at. I understand that really the limit on voltage are the temps produced as a result of the voltage but equally there must be a maximum the components can run at long term even if kept within decent temps.

    If you are able to let me know for the 3 bits of kit below what I shouldn't go above, irrespective of temp, that would be amazing

    Ryzen 5 1600
    Rx580
    Corsair 3200mhz DDR4 lpx vengeance

    Thanks all.

    Ryzen should be kept below 1.375V, RX 580 should be kept below 1.25V and DDR4 can be run up to 1.35V.

    Those are assuming you keep Ryzen below 70C and RX 580 below 80C.

    Thanks, that's exactly what I needed.

    I am below all those which is good news.

    Got my Ryzen at 3.9, reckon I can get 4 with better cooling.
    The ram is running at 3200 at the voltage you stated and the 580 can max it mem clock and hit 1500 core clock. :)

    Might also be worth increasing the power limit/target on the RX 580, but it will increase temps if you were power throttled before.

    Just wow

    Ryzen should be kept below 1.375V, 1.4v is been used dayley by many people
    RX 580 should be kept below 1.25V did know the number but i do +100mv on my 570(same card as 580)
    DDR4 can be run up to 1.35V. DDR4 ios good upto 1.5v and some IC's are good upto 1.65v


    TBF 3.9Ghz at 1.375 will be you max i would not push higher for 100mhz that is little to no gain in the real world.
    What are the ram timing of your Corsair sticks, the overclocking will do dictated by timing more than voltage is your at 3200mhz stock
